An Introduction to Bond Graph Modeling with Applications
- Available for pre-order. Item will ship after June 18, 2021
An Introduction to Bond Graph Modeling with Applications presents a collection of exercises on dynamical systems, modeling and control for university students in the areas of engineering, physics and applied mathematics. We can find several books on bond graphs, but most merely a small set of exercises and, in a few cases, some commands for computer packages like MATLAB or Mathematica. It is diﬃcult to ﬁnd books with a broad set of solved exercises and proposed exercises with solutions, guiding researchers starting their work with bond graphs, or students who are just beginning their study of the topic. This book aims to fill that gap, and provide a comprehensive, reader-friendly introduction to the Bond Graph modeling tool.
- Gives in-depth theoretical background coupled with practical, hands-on instructions.
- Provides a clear pedagogical framework, with numerous exercises and problems.
- Suitable for students and researchers who work with bond graphs: principally such as applied mathematicians, physicist and engineers.

J. A. Tenreiro Machado was born at 1957. He earned his PhD. (1989) and ‘Habilitation’ (1995), in Electrical and Computer Engineering at the University of Porto. He started his teaching and research activity in 1980. He is currently the Principal Coordinator Professor at the Dept. of Electrical Engineering, Institute of Engineering, Polytechnic Institute of Porto,. His research interests include complex systems, nonlinear dynamics, fractional calculus, modeling, entropy, control, evolutionary computing, and others.
Vitor M. R. Cunha graduated in Electrical and Computer Engineering from the University of Porto in 1999. He completed his master's degree also in Electrical and Computer Engineering from the Polytechnic Institute of Porto in 2009. He started to work as a research assistant after graduating and began teaching at the Dept. of Electrical Engineering, Institute of Engineering, Polytechnic Institute of Porto in 2001. He works in a wide spectrum of subjects such as Information Technology, Virtual Reality, Realtime Simulation, Robotics, Electronics, Modeling and Control of Dynamical Systems.
"The forthcoming book, An Introduction to Bond Graph Modeling with Applications by J. A. Tenreiro Machado and Vitor M. R. Cunha is an excellent university textbook on the bond graph modelling presenting a collection of exercises on dynamical systems, modeling, and control for university students. The book provides a clear pedagogical framework on bond graph modelling, giving in-depth theoretical background coupled with practical, hands-on instructions for mathematical modeling of various dynamical systems, such as hydraulic systems, thermal systems, and electrical systems. We recommend the book for students and researchers who work in applied mathematics, physics, and engineering."

"This is a very well-written book on bond graph method for discrete and low-degrees of freedom systems. The book has many interesting examples for the readers to practice. The most important part of the book is an introduction of a software platform for implementing the bond graph methods. This will make is easy for the readers to use the bond graph method to model complex dynamic systems."
– Jian-Qiao Sun, University of California, Merced and Editor-in-Chief, International Journal of Dynamics and Control
"The book presents an introduction to bond graph modelling applied to several areas of engineering comprising, electrical, mechanical, hydraulic as well as multi-domain systems. By using a modular methodology, students can easily grasp the general ideas to model dynamical systems. Furthermore, it offers a subtle notion of symmetry helpful to unify concepts, by showing the unity of the principles used, and accordingly to extend the ideas to other possible domains. The rich illustrations, the multitude of examples and exercises with solutions makes it an excellent textbook very useful for students, for learning to model and control dynamical systems applied in various engineering disciplines."
